A series produced and directed by Tikilounge Productions for Coconet TV, #TalesOfTime, has been voted Best Pacific Programme at this year's New Zealand Television Awards.

Producer Lisa Taouma says the award puts Coconet TV on people's radar and the spotlight on heritage content for Kiwi-Islanders who often don't know much about Pacific history in the islands.

"That series is all about particular moments and times and events that have happened in Pacific history," she says. "I'm so happy these awards helped bring it into the spotlight."
